Day 231 – A Picture A Day While My Soldier’s Away

Snow Day!  Kylie wanted to take her new sled out for a spin today, so we invited Tara and Abby to join us as we set out searching for a hill.  We walked about a block away and found a little bunny slope near the railroad tracks that was perfect for the girls.  They had a blast!  We took Pixie with us too and even she had fun.  As I was snapping away one hilarious picture after another, I realized that I have never been sledding.  Mostly because I have not lived around snow much, but also because I was always so overweight that the mere idea of sledding was enough to make me cringe.  With my weight loss, I have been able to attempt many new things that I never thought possible before.  At that moment, I knew I was going sledding next!  I hopped on the little {very little} plastic disc and let Kylie and Abby give me a big {very big} push.  I flew down the mountain {ok bunny slope} and screamed the whole way.  It was euphoric!  I felt like a kid for a moment – a very brief moment – until I hit the bottom and slid off the sled and landed flat on my back.   Ok, so maybe I was a little too enthusiastic about sledding.  I did however, get up.  I brushed myself off and hopped back on… again and again 🙂
